last series of books

July 4, 2009

The last series of books turned out in an unexpected way. The stamp imprints stained white instead of blue! Stuart said it probably had to do with the proportions of chemical mix. So now the imprint designs are white and the background is bluish/brown. In other words, I screwed up on mixing  the 4CN solution. But, I am  happy with the results. The designs on these books are by John Greyson (left) and Vincent Chevalier (middle). This is what the stamps look like.(My design is on the right).


here are the imprints as seen on the book sculptures:

The talk on Sunday was an excellent opportunity to present my work done in the lab and show some of the work created by participants who took my  workshop.

Here are some photos taken by my good friend Megan, a dedicated archivist and excellent documenter. (She is secretly collecting documents of bioart works and probably has enough material by now to curate an amazing exhibition).

The audience looks somewhat puzzled in this shot. But in actuality, the conversation was lively and enthusiastic. Pia and Nikki (in the center) are two of the artists who took my workshop. See for more info and images from that event held for two days at the Fremantle Arts Centre.

I am wrapping up the last series of cryobooks today and will post the results soon.  So stay tuned.

Thanks to everyone who came out to my studio talk on Sunday. I’ll be posting a synopsis next week.

I fly out of Perth tomorrow and will have a chance to catch up on writing about some key thoughts that have emerged from the process while I relax in Singapore for a couple of days.
